Glimmers of Hope : A Memoir of Zambia

eBook (PDF), 249 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $2.74
The true story of a London schoolteacher, who, tired of the rat race and brooding over a failed relationship, uproots and volunteers to teach in rural Africa for two years. Sent to the Republic of Zambia with a remit to teach maths, HIV and Gender awareness, he finds eager pupils struggling in a challenging environment. In between battling snakes, stomach-bugs and death-defying bus journeys, he finds both hope in unusual places, and corruption where he least expects. This memoir is both a recollection of his more vivid memories of eastern province, and his reflections on problems in Zambia and their possible causes. It is also a useful study of the physical and psychological challenges that a volunteer may face in Africa.

    A frank and rather worrying account of life in Zambia. The author tells of his daily struggles teaching as a volunteer in Africa. From corruption and theft to religion, politics and the HIV/Aids epidemic, he leaves no stone unturned. A real eye opener and a must read.
